Alternative Pain Relief for Milwaukee Patients
Osteopathic manipulative therapy, usually shortened to OMT, is a system of hands-on techniques used by doctors of osteopathic medicine (DO) to alleviate pain and correct structural changes in the body. Dr. Neal Pollack of Neurology & Pain Treatment Center is Milwaukee’s doctor of osteopathic medicine as an alternative to surgery and painkillers.
Manual medicine, OMT involves doctors directly using their hands to mobilize areas in pain or discomfort. Disease, injury, and the natural aging process can all lead to changes in the musculoskeletal system. Improper body structure leads to abnormal function, leading to pain and discomfort.
OMT is commonly used to treat the following:
How OTM is Better than Surgery
Unlike surgery, OMT is a non-invasive technique for relieving pain naturally. There is no going under general anesthetic, no being cut open, and no scars. OMT is performed on a few times a week with no hospital visits. Patients can go home after each appointment, feeling better.
Avoid Painkillers with Osteopathic Manipulation Therapy
Painkillers only mask pain temporarily. The longer a patient has to take them, the higher chance the patient could become addicted or develop a tolerance for the pills. OMT is a way to achieve pain relief naturally without expensive painkillers.
